Report from the World Congress on the GSD

Interesting read – a report on the proceedings at the World Congress on the GSD. Items of particular note:

  • bloodlines for the working dog are from a much wider base, with breeding for show lines being market-driven, and so from a much narrower gene pool.
  • there is no chance for a reliable genetic test for existing or future hip dysplasia.
  • a consensus that “modern dog training” for working dogs is compatible with international training rules.

Worth reading the full article.
